Raffle for pickleball gear supports Building on Love

Pickleball instructor Gina Family is raising money for Building on Love, a charity that provides financial support to families supporting a loved-one facing a recent life-altering medical diagnosis. The Cohoes-based group provides short term help with non-medical bills such as mortgage/rent payments, auto payments, repairs and insurance as well as other essential non-medical living expenses.

You can support the charity AND win some pickleball swag.

“Two pickleball friends of mine, Diane and Jerry, asked me to sponsor and decorate a tree,” Gina Family wrote in an announcement about the fundraising effort. “We decorated a beautiful pickleball tree. The tree also has almost $1,000 in merchandise and services.”

  • A Paddletek Paddle and cover, value $145
